Today in Heritage History, June 19, 1988, the world’s largest sausage, 413 meters long, is completed in the Sardinian province of Sassari*. Women traveled from all over the globe to worship, pay homage, take photographs (back to their husbands) and  build shrines. Several female pilgrims (even) reported sightings of the Virgin Mary.

*The record no longer stands. It was beaten (no pun intended) in 2009 by the province of Potenza who created a 450 meter sausage.
